about me

my story

Bonita Burger

Whether you are heading down the aisle, celebrating a special occasion or simply getting together with your nearest and dearest, I am here to help you capture life’s precious moments on camera.

Specializing in wedding and portrait photography, I travel countrywide to work with couples, brides-to-be, expectant moms, and families sometimes spanning several generations.

I originally studied fine art and I’ve always loved the creative side of life. In recent years, my passion for photography has grown into a full-time career and I’ve now been fortunate enough to play my part in almost 100 weddings.

So, when that special moment comes around or you just want to make some memories, get in touch and we can start planning your photoshoot.

Over the years, I have attended a number of workshops to keep up to date with the latest industry trends and to sharpen my skills. This has led to me learning from some of South Africa’s most celebrated photographers, including:

  • Brett Florence
  • Sybrand Mostert
  • Kikitography
  • Christine Meintjes

Every photographer has their favourite camera brand. I am a Nikon lover through and through. The first camera I ever owned was a Nikon, and this love affair has lasted until today.

My Gear:

  • Nikon D3s
  • Nikon D750
  • NIKON D850
  • Lens 50mm F1.4 (my favourite)
  • Lens 70 – 20 mm f2.8
  • Lens 24 – 70 mm (f2.8)
  • Tamron 150 – 600mm (wildlife hobby photography)
  • SB 900 flash
  • SB 700 flash

My Method

Nothing beats natural light. That is why the golden hour (the hour before sunset and after sunrise) is perfect for portrait photography. Wherever I can find natural light, I will use it.

However, when the light isn’t perfect, I have my trusty living light kit as a backup.

i'd love to work with you
